Summary of 3 articles · Updated Apr 27, 2013
With the 254th and final pick of the 2013 NFL draft, the Indianapolis Colts selected South Carolina tight end Justice Cunningham, this year's Mr. Irrelevant. With the No. 254 selection, the Colts took South Carolina tight end Justice Cunningham. The idea for Mr. Irrelevant is to dignify the NFL draft's final pick, but that was temporarily confusing when creator Paul Salata botched the name in today's announcement of South Carolina tight end Justice Cunningham. During the summer following the draft, Mr. Irrelevant and his family are invited to participate in a host of events throughout Orange County. This year, Irrelevant Week XXXVIII is proud to support Special Olympics Southern California. Founded by Paul Salata in 1976, Irrelevant Week is a 38-year-old philanthropic tradition within the Newport Beach community that commemorates the final National Footbal League draft pick each season while simultaneously raising money for charitable organizations. It's the second straight year in which the Colts got the final pick of the draft in 2012, they took Northern Illinois quarterback Chandler Harnish.
